Autumn is a great time to sell your home

Autumn could well be the perfect time for you to sell your home to your ideal buyer. Sales by seasons is a popular measure in our industry, with various times of the year regarded as the best time to sell. We find that autumn also proves to be a busy time for us with buyers and sellers keen to move before Christmas, or have a fresh start before the new year.

If you were thinking of wrapping up and waiting till spring, we say DON’T! There are some great reasons why now is a good time to get your property out there in front of the huge pool of buyers still waiting to snap up their dream home.

In this blog post we look at 5 key things that prove autumn is a good time to be productive, and not yet go into hibernation (you can do that in your new home!).

The nights are drawing in and the Christmas period is only a matter of weeks away

While darker evenings feel a bit miserable after the beautiful, rather hot, summer we’ve just had, there are positives to this season! Once it’s started to cool down, everyone is back at home ready to settle down a bit earlier in the evening and that’s when most have the time to think, what is the plan now? Christmas is coming, we could be moved, settled, and ready to enjoy the festive period in a new home; we need to get serious with the search if we want to achieve this goal. So now really is a good time to get those serious buyers viewing your home and start looking for your next dream home.

Autumnal colours and scents are inviting and homely  

The beautiful tones of autumn, classic orange and browns, with door wreaths and autumnal table centre pieces, cinnamon and pumpkin spice in the air, you can really set the scene for your potential buyers to want to move straight in and cosy up. A warm inviting home, especially on a cold day outside, can make all the right impressions.

You may find support services for moving are more readily available  

Following the huge drive for selling in spring many people complete during the summer months. The days tend to be dryer and warmer and it’s easier to move your boxes around with the longer days. However; getting the right help and support on the days that you need and want it can be a struggle, with companies like home removal coordinators overstretched. As autumn hits, these companies are not as run off their feet as they have been and are more likely to have your preferred date available and maybe even at a reduced rate.

It’s a great time to attract the more serious buyer

September into October is when we really see serious buyers come through the door, as we mentioned earlier key goals to settle in before Christmas/New Year are a true driver for viewing properties that they are keen to proceed with. There is still a huge pool of buyers looking for their next move, and your home could be just what they are looking for. We are the leading Estate agents in Virginia Water, contact us today for a valuation on your home or to see what we have available on our rota to show you around.

With the right agent, your home can stand out this autumn

If your home goes on the market in autumn it is more likely to stand out as there are still many homes coming onto the market but not as many as the influx that we see in spring. Buyers are always looking at what’s new and with the right advice, the perfect photography and scene setting (as we’ve said above, think homely & inviting!) we can help you get serious buyers lined up.
